Trail investment proposals

At our SW Trails meeting we decided to schedule walks to inspect our SWTrail system with the objective of listing the improvements needed on each segment.

Here, listed by trail, is a starting list. Please add your added projects. Some segments serve more than one trail, I have referenced the overlaps, or tried to do so. Those of these projects that are in the Barbur Corridor are listed here.
